Rebecca Romijn has had a tough time escaping her ex-husband's name.

The model and actress, who went by Rebecca Romijn-Stamos while she was married to actor John Stamos, told Redbook magazine that she is still frequently called by her old name.

"Oh my God, it happened to me last night!" she said.

Romijn dropped Stamos' name after their 2004 divorce and married Jerry O'Connell in 2007, but decided to keep her maiden name.

Romijn and O'Connell are parents to twin girls. She told the magazine that the pair handle parenting and household duties without outside help.

"We're each other's assistants. We pick up each other's slack. Whoever is less busy helps the busier one: 'Can you go pick this up for me?' or 'Can you book my flight?' That's what real life is," she said. "Once you start paying somebody else to do the grunt work, who are you?"

Romijn may have given up her ex-husband's name after the divorce, but plenty of stars decide to keep their ex's surnames. Click through the slideshow below to see who they are.
